"With an addictive, hypnotic feel that wraps around you and urges you sway along from the first hazy beats right to the final notes, the track is brilliant glimpse of what might be in store for us in the album."
“A fine mix of soul, blues, gospel and rock ‘n’ roll that deserves a larger audience. […] It’s never too late to discover such good music.”
Kyle Lacy is a guitarist and singer from Atlanta, Georgia and was born in 1990; however, his time machine made a quick refueling stop in 1956 and he was quickly infected with the DNA that gave birth to Rock’n’Roll. He has been living, performing, recording, and producing in the New York area since 2013.
His debut album “The Road to Tomorrow” was released in 2020 by Brooklyn-based Dala Records. The album's lead single “Low and Slow” was played on BBC radio and described as a “Trunk of Funk” by the Craig Charles Funk and Soul show. “A fine mix of soul, blues, gospel and rock ‘n’ roll that deserves a larger audience” (AddtoWantlist).
Kyle also has cheekbones for days and hair that Elvis stole (remember that time machine?) His 2nd album Pleasurecraft is out January 20, 2023 on Lacy Records. Any given Saturday, you can find him holding forth in his residency at Club Groove in the West Village. Through Lacy Records he has produced releases for singer songwriter Warren Malone and he also plays in and produces local alt-rock heroes Mel and the Tall Boys.

"Lacy’s music is infused with the raw soul of the records he grew up listening to with his parents: Wynonie Harris, Big Joe Turner, Jerry Lee Lewis."
"With Lacy's sprightly vocals -- JD McPherson should look over his shoulder -- and the band packing the album into a two-day recording session, the album packs a needed punch."
Adobe & Teardrops
"Gut-wrenching words that resonate with people the world over and reminiscent of classic soul music..."
